Is this a great community or what? Of the 4 responses so far, 2 from different Texans, one from Pittsburgh and one from a local that's not so local. I appreciate all your responses, thanks.
DC Metro is a highly transient area along with being the biggest tourist destination in the US, so a lot of us "from elsewhere" have spent some time in & around DC. In my case, I lived in Arlington & McLean 1978 - 2005 and we still keep condo back there for visits.
I agree with Tony Bad
about Hard Times Cafe
; 3 varieties of really good chili (Texas, Cincy, & Veggie) + really good bar food: burgers, rings, etc. Didn't know they had a F'bg
location; definitely worth a stop.
And, I agree with BB
is "no big deal" except that, well, it's Carl's!!!
Mrs. Metro III was from nearby Stafford, VA and was, along with all of F'bg,
about the place (unfortunately, that was not the extent of her craziness
BTW: if you are a golfer, check out Augustine
Edit: historical note - "The Imdispensible Man
" was born near F'bg in a recently rediscovered home on the Rappahannock River. His father's name was Augustine
; the local university in F'bg is named for his mother, Mary Washington,
of whom he once wrote "All that I am I owe to my mother
". (Augustine Washington had passed away early in Washington's youth).
